In Details

Heading to the historic Monastery of IoannisProdromos by bikes, you have a guided tour at the monastery Timios Prodromos, which is only 4 km from the village of Anatoli. You will get to know about the renovated monastery, which had been built out of stones back in 1500 A.C., but also the well-conserved church with its rare icons and the exquisite surrounding space. In the following, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the hospitality of the nuns, to listen to them and to be toured in the monastery’s farm, so as to view with your own eyes the biological methods of cultivation, the mountainous breeding, the way they have managed to be independent with their food and fanatic supporters of any ecological means of growing. You can always offer your help to the Monastery.

As you leave the Monastery be sure that apart from the glass of milk that will be waiting for you, you will also listen to words of wisdom, tradition, history and Christian love. You return to the central square of the village, where you can have a short break to grab a snack or even to have lunch in the local tavernas.

You continue a descend route following the hiking route you follow the path towards the south and you cross the old street that was built for the horses, which is now part of the National path O2 (which connects Kissavos to Pelion and to Olympus). The route is easy, suitable for children over 10 years old, very well signed and it passes through a forest path to end up in a cobbled street. After having hiked for almost two and a half hours you arrive at the historic village of Metaxochori, which is built at an altitude of 200 m. It is one of the most beautiful villages of the area, with lots of traditional houses, most of which are mansions, a rich history and tradition, since in the past the people of the village developed an industry of silk, from where it took its name (In Greek metaxi=silk).

Going downhill next to the stream and following the picturesque streets of the village we will make a last stop at a old house where there is an attempt to revive the sericulture (silkworm breeding). 

Admiring the stone-built mansions that dominate the village, we complete the excursion by having a traditional homemade tastful meal! It is an offer by Cycling Hellas and by the traditional Yiam flavor lab.

See you again, beautiful Kissavos!
